it seems that they're still trying to find a deal, rather than being done and dusted (he is/was not the only candidate)...or maybe, now they've finally got the agreement they were looking for...

 

we'll see in the next few weeks, I guess (sooner or later they have to make some kind of announcement)...

Would be extremely weird. Spain must pay insane money for him to go there. I am sure he could have gone to pretty much any world-class country (or France) for a lot of money.

Russian warship, go fuck yourself!

Good to see some opposition from non-participants, but as long as the women directly affected are too cowardly to take a public stand this bully is going to be continue bullying then.

And in case you think that the NCAA means nothing, the true champion is Olympic 400m IM silver medallist Emma Weyant. So Thomas is capable of destroying the sport at a global level.

  • 2 weeks later...

The Greek Aquatics Federation requested that the swimming competition at the Mediterranean Games be pushed back a week in order to give swimmers the time to compete in both the World Championships and the Mediterranean Games.

 

This request has now been granted, so the swimming will be from 1-5 July instead of 26-30 June (swimming at the World Championships will be from 18-25 June).
